View Full Version : Experimental Speedup of Commercial Detection Broken

November 21st, 2011, 11:24 PM
I turned on Experimental Speedup of Commercial Detection on MythDora 12.24 which runs MythTV 0.24-6 with good results. Time to flag HD commercials was about half as without it and detect the commercials correctly. However, after moving to Mythbuntu 11.04 (at latest fixes) Experimental Speedup of Commercial Detection is completely broken. It fails very quickly and always reports 134 commercial breaks. Turning if off flags commercials correctly again.

Anybody else having problems with Experimental Speedup of Commercial Detection?

I've never used it. How is it installed/enabled?

Turned on via Mythfrontend Setup -> TV Settings -> General, 3rd screen is General (Jobs), it is the 2nd option on the screen. I also have Strict Commercial Detection enabled along with All Available Methods.
